Welcome to the Law School Toolbox Podcast. Today we have a special guest on the podcast, Meg Keene. Meg is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of A Practical Wedding, (the top independently-held wedding publication in the world), the author of two books (A Practical Wedding and A Practical Wedding Planner), and the creator of a new project, The Compact. Although Meg is not a lawyer, she is married to one, so we consider her part of the club. She’s also a kick-ass entrepreneur with a lot of very interesting things to say, so tune in!
In this episode we discuss:
- The path to entrepreneurship and what you need to know to be successful
- Challenges of running a business as a woman and mother
- Balancing politics and her decision to include a social mission as part of her business
- How to remain authentic in sharing your experiences while maintaining some privacy
- The effort required to create and maintain a social media presence
- Being in a relationship with a law student and lawyer
